like india and china. so that problems were more difficult. >> so you are grinding out and you need to really try to transform the systems. i think that's what we're finding that's different. if you pick one thing to work on within that system, you're never going to solve these big problems. so what's the right policy change. how do you engage the private sector. what's the innovation and technology that you use. and then how do you get the people themselves more engaged. this isn't any more about doing things for people or even, certainly not two people. it's really more doing things with people. people around the world want to be part of the solution, not just part of the problem. >> how do you see the global economy today? >> a little grim. europe and the u.k. i think are really going to face a hard recovery. it's going to take a lot of effort. a lot of sacrifice, a lot of pain. the united states, i think, will in my view going to recover faster. >> than europe. >> than europe and part of it is going to be the innovativeness. >> uh-huh. >> that's embedded in the united states and

jintao, the president of china. and, you know, a picture can speak a thousand words or more. you know, he's the head of state of the land of the free, and here he is in an act of subservience to the head of the communist state. so i think you have to think what that means and then look at the policies that he's implementing and wants to implement and what that means for our relationship with china and america's relationship in the world. and i think you can look at several things, but one is just the amount of debt that he, that president obama is stacking up. you know, we're at the point where our debt is about 15 trillion and growing. i didn't check this morning, but, um, which is, you know, roughly the size of of an entire year of economic growth. so everything bought, produced, consumed, all the service of the united states which is by far the biggest economy in the world, our debt gobbles that up. a whole year's economy of the biggest economy in the world. so you have to think all these programs that obama, all these stimulus programs, i mean, where does that money come from? we're b

and spain spiking higher. also we're going to have some key trade data out of china ahead of the all-important gdp numbers on friday. and of course weave the all-important earnings season kicking off in the united states. a lot for investors to take in. let's see how all of that is kicking off here. both indexes trading higher. we're just march alginally lower for the nikkei. it ended lower yesterday for three days in a row. not helped by economic indicators in japan, china or the u.s. highlighting global concerns about growth in the major economies of the world. in the eurozone as we've been following, the key finance minister meeting is on the agenda and also a german constitutional court ruling which also will be a key focus there later in the week. and that's going to be focusing on the bailout funds used for weaker eurozone economy. that's a big issue right there. all of that has kept a little bit of the lid on the euro and that's also close to two-year lows against the dollar. keeping low against the yen as well, compared to the gains it made last week fo

is shared in china? beijing got a waiver on the issue of importing iranian oil, making the case that they had cut down their imports, but they still need iranian oil. do you think they're comfortable with where things are heading? >> let me say something quite provocative here. because it's impossible to get out of the western perception of this problem. in the west they can go around changing government is ending. western power has peaked. and from now on, it will go down. the only question is how are you going to change iranian behavior? and i truly believe, frankly, that the only way to change iranian behavior is to engage the iranian regime. now, of course, this is unthinkable still in the west, but you asked about china. frankly, from china's point of view, the more the west isolates iran, the more iran becomes a gift to china. and now that america has said, okay, you can go ahead and buy oil, china is off the hook. and that's happening because it is impossible for america to impose the same sanctions on chinese banks. they can impose on any other banks in the world. and th
